After much preparation and hard work, our Calibration Laboratory's ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation has been successfully reaffirmed after passing the latest assessment conducted by a third party auditor A2LA (American Association of Laboratory Accreditation), and was completed on October 21st, 2016. Today, our company's accreditation is upheld by TE Wires high quality standards and enforced by our Quality Control department. The annual inter-laboratory proficiency testing was conducted by the National Association for Proficiency Testing (NAPT), which included TE Wire & Cable. As noted in a final issued report from 12/13/16, the results were satisfactory.

In many cases, aluminum heat treatment processes only required air temperature measurement with stationary thermocouples (TCs). These stationary TC wires were rarely checked for their calibration and were only replaced when not functioning.
